Flag Day ~ Anniversary ~ Using Egg Slicer ~ Dude/Bruiser ~ Watermelon Martini ~ Full Moon


Good 43º clear sunny morning. Stayed pretty cloudy here all day yesterday and the rain never touched the ground...


It's Saturday and it's Flag Day



... and 39 years ago today Jerry and I got married.

Married in the courtyard of the San Gabriel Congregational Church on San Gabriel Blvd. Steve Voors (LASD ret) was Best Man and Sandy (Todoran Kraut) Beck (Wilson S'63)was my Matron of Honor. Kristen was Flower Girl and Brian the Ring Bearer. We had a party at our house after the ceremony. Happy Anniversary Darling!  ♥ ♥


Here is some good advice in regards to slicing... it says "borrow your grandmother's egg slicer". Grandmother's??? Hey! It's mine!!! Oh wait, I'm a grandmother. Duh....

Met him once at the Arboretum in Arcadia where scenes were filmed for Fantasy Island. He was a guest on the show. A real ass. Thought wayyyyy too much of himself. On the other hand, Ricardo Montalban and Herve Villechaize were awesome and sooooo nice!


1932 – Joe Arpaio, American police officer

I enjoy Dude and the Bruise...They just stayed close all day... Dude at my side wherever I go ....

... and Bruiser on my lap when I sit down...

Did a lot of "stuff" yesterday. Cleaned out my computer. Contemplating getting a new one. Got all Alex's graduation photos on a DVD for her and will mail it. Nothing else going on.
Dinner was reruns... but pre-dinner was a watermelon martini...




YUMMMMMM!!!!!
Watched some TV. Napped in chair. Got up to go to bed and took a picture of that full moon...

I like that new show, Night Shift. A little more intense and nuttier than Grey's Anatomy. Guy who runs hospital is a jerk, one doctor was a medic in Afghanistan during conflict. Interesting stuff.
Happy for LA Kings fans.
All I know. Happy Saturday. Wear your RED WHITE & BLUE and make sure your flag is up. Nuff said. Ciao.

Happy Flag Day! How neat that your anniversary is on Flag Day. You looked so adorable in your wedding photo. Your hair was beautiful.

I remember at Parnell saying the Pledge around the flag pole every morning as the flag was raised. Miss Yoder told us that we were now to add "Under God" to the Pledge. Wonderful!

Our flag has been down ever since we had those wild winds over a month ago. I just now asked John if he had put it up again and he said yes. Good!!

Your martini looks oh so yummy!! I'll bet it was good. A watermelon Margarita would have been yummy too.

I read his auto biography and I was blown away by his background! I recommend that book to everyone. You will have soooo much respect for him! What a guy!

Thanks T!! Yes, Joe Arpaio is a great sheriff. I think John Scott is doing a lot of good for our LASD too. xo
